OOIXINS WUIKLKSS STOCK.
??11? on New York Curb Market For
Lernt Than In Sumter.
Editor of The Item:
Having Information that Mr. M. L.
Rise w?hl has sold a great deal of the
stork of The Collins' Wireless Tele?
phone Co.. of Newark, N. J., to peo?
ple In this State at $3 and $4 per
share, and believing that the people
should know what they are buying, I
respectfully request that you publish
the following letter, received by the
firm that I represent In response to a
Sett* Asking for lnformstl mi shout
The tilns* WlrtfleJW Telephone Co.'s
IX 'handler Clothing Co .
*Jr- Sumter, S. C.
Oentlemen. Replying to yours of
the. Ith Inst.. Inquiring about The Col*
line Wireless Telephone Securities,
would say. that the company Is capi?
talised at one million dollars and the
par value Is II. It Is offered on the
eurb In our city at 1 l-l and 1 1-8 is
bid for It. In the advertisement you
seat us we notice that they say that
while the stock lasts you csn buy It
at 14 per share.
We do not like to advise anyone in
regard to investment of money. We
feel in this case however, that we
would not care ourselves to purchase
The Wall street Journal, a paper
printed In New York covering the
subject of securities and giving ad
rise In a conservstlve manner, has s
column devoted to answering such
Inquiries as you ssk us, and If you
would forward them a request the>
would probably reply, especially If
you would say that you note that this
Is a feature of their paper.
All these wireless companies seem
from our view point to have capital"
Isd their inventions and opportuni?
ties almost one hundred fold, in an?
ticipation of benefits and results to be
achieved, which are a long way from
being realised at the present time,
and were being conducted as stock
jobbing propositions rather than
I practical inventions to do every day
If you will look up the capitalisa?
tion of these different wireless com?
panies you will find that they are all
up In the millions and securities are
not well thought of as Investments by
the conservstlve bankers and brokers.
Yours very truly,
New York. Nov. I, 1909.
From the above letter It will be
seen that the same stock that Is be?
ing sold In this State at 13 and |4 per
share is offered in New York at $1.37
1-1 per share.

five of the 800 bodies of men who
were killed by Saturday's fire recov

towards clearing the mine will be
made tomorrow. Charity has poured
aid into the homes of suffering sur
vlvora but this could not subdue the
grief of Cherry's Inhabitants when
the sight of the dead, lifted from the
tomb, exploded their hopes that men
might be r*???o">Arl gHVO.

HOW TO CURE RHEUMATISM.
It Is en Internal Disease and Re?
quires an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin?
dred diseases Is an excess of uric acid
In the blood. To cure this terrible dis?
ease this acid must be expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
seid will be formed in excessive quan?
tities. Rheumatism is an Internal
disease and requires an internal rem
edy. Rubbing witj| Oils and Lini?
ments will not cure, affords only tem?
porary relief at best, causes you to
delay the proper treatment, and al
, lows the malady to get a firmer hold
on you. Liniments may ease the pain,
but they will no more cure Rheuma?
tism than paint will change the fibre
of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete cure, which Is
called "Rheumacide." Tested In hun
dreds of cases, it has effected thr
most marvelous cures; we believe it
will cure you. Rheumacide "gets at
the joints from the inside,' sweeps
the poisons out of thr system tones
up the stomach regulates the liver
and kidneys and makt s you well all
over. Rheumacide "strikes the roots
of the disease and removes its cause."

gists and dealers generally at 50c and

THE COTTON MARKET.
Rumors of lienrish Import Freely
Circulated?Cotton World Now
Awaits Government Crop Estimate.
New York, Nov. 19.?It has been a
ntrvoui cotton market, dominated for
the most part by large Interests which
In the main are bullish. Also, how?
ever, the receipts have undoubtedly
fallen off sharply; spot markets have
been strong with reports of increased
activity here and there; New York
sold 15,000 bales in one block on
Thursday for export and Eugene
Scales denies emphatically a rumor ;
current on Thursday that he was ;
selling out his holdings preparatory
to leaving New York. From time to
time similar rumors have been cir?
culated, supposedly by bear interests,
and they have caused much soreness
among *he bulls, who accuse their op?
ponents of stabbing them in the
back. At one time a rumor is circu?
lated that Patten is selling out then
again that Scales is, then again that
the whole bull outfit Is liquidating.
The answer to this has usually been a
sharp rally in prices. Moreover, the
general killing frost of late in the
Southwest, according to bulls, dis?
poses finally and effectually of the
expectations of a top crop in that
quarter. In fact killing frost has
been so general not only In the
Southwest but also in the central belt
and east of the Mississippi that many
regard the growing season as prac?
tically over and they await with im?
patience the government crop esti?
mate on December 10. That will be
what Horace Greely used to call
"mighty interesting reading" for the
German and Russian reports are
to the effect that spinners are having
a good trade. Cotton goods in this
country have increased in value;
trade has been hindered somewhat by
unseasonable weather. Chicago, how?
ever, has had a good trade.. At one
time a report was circulated that
many of the Manchester mills were
resuming full time but this appears
to have been a mistake.
Many reports from the South have
lately been that most of'the crop
has been ginned. Sea Island cotton
has been selling at 33 to 37 cents or
ibout 10 cents higher than a year
ago. Some Alabama mills which had
"hut down or had curtailed opera?
tions are. It U said, resuming work
rti full time.
On t!i" other hand spot cotton has
been geneiully quiet and speculation
has dwindled. A f jw large operators
have ruled the market. They insist
that prices are ultimately going to 18
or 20 cents but the general public af?
ter its recent rough experience on
he bull side has been wary about
peculation and It Is not improbable
that the bulls will have to make good
in no uncertain fashion if they are
to secure another outside following.
In some parts of the South, too, it
s reported that a practical deadlock
exists In the matter of spot cotton,
holders firmly maintaining prices and
spinners holding aloof Of late there
has been aot a little selling on the
act that the National Glnners' Asso
latlon put the total ginning up to
vovember 14 at 8.096,000 bales. One
nimor was that the total was 8,250,
?00 bales as against previous intima?
tions that It was only 7,911,000 bales.
This uncertainty about the ginners'
gures and a good deal of selling hy
Memphis, Liverpool, Wall street and
'he West contributed largely to the
decline of Thursday and Friday. Bears
look for a substantial decline before
the first of the year, but bulls insist
that cotton is likely to rule high at
least for three years to come in the
general expansion of trade, echoing
Andrew Carnegie's sentiment, "We
are in throes of prosperity and good
times are to have a long, long ses?
Conservative Interests, however,
leprecate any wild or reckless spec?
ulation on either side of the market.

A New Back for an Old One-?How
It Is Done in Sumter.
The back aches at times with dull,
indescribable feeling, making you
weary and restless; piercing pains
shoot across the region of the kid?
neys, and again the loins are so lame
to stoop is agony. No use to rub or
apply plaster to the back in this con?
dition. You cannot reach the cause.
Exchange the bad back for a new and
stronger one. Follow the example of
this Sumter citizen.
Mrs. B. B. Seymour, 318 W. Cai
houn St., Sumter, S. C, says: "I was
annoyed a great deal by the kidney
secretions, had dull, nagging back?
aches and distressing pains through
my loins. I used Doan's Kidney Pills
which I procured at China's drug
store and have not had any trouble
with my back since. That was about
a year ago and I am glad to say that
Doan's Kidney Pills entirely cured
me. My son was also afflicted with
kidney trouble, being unable to con?
trol the kidney secretions, especially
at night. Since taking Doan's Kid?
ney Pills, he has improved wonder?
fully. He is much stronger and is
able to control the kidney secretions.
I gladly recommend Doan's Kidney
Pills In return for the good they did
in our family."
